Saptaswara devata: Sa

The first swara, the ‘Adhara Shadja or Sa, is personified in this painting. As mentioned in the introductory note published in the July issue of Sruti, all the saptaswara devata paintings including the Shadja, were visualised based on the characteristics found in Muthiah Bhagavatar’s Sangeeta Kalpadrumam. (S. Rajam himself shared details about his swaradevata paintings with Sruti.)
